The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has sold its allotment of 950 tickets available to the general public for the RTA's special July 4th Music City Star train to the Nashville celebration at Riverfront Park.
No other tickets will be for sale July 4th on the platforms. Parking is free at all of the outlying stations.
The train will depart from Lebanon Station at 4 p.m., stop in Martha at 4:13 p.m., Mt. Juliet at 4:24 p.m., Hermitage at 4:33 p.m., Donelson at 4:44 p.m. and arrive at Nashville’s Riverfront Station at approximately 5:05 p.m. The return train to Lebanon leaves 45 minutes after the conclusion of the Nashville fireworks.
Customers who purchased the special train tickets will need to show their ticket to train personnel for scanning when boarding on both trips. Children age 4 and younger will not need a ticket to board; however, they will be required to sit in a parent or guardian’s lap. Children age 5 and older will need a ticket. Weekday Music City Star tickets and passes are not accepted on the July 4th train. After the fireworks, passengers should be seated in the same train car for easier exiting at their designated station.
Following deboarding at Riverfront Station, the train will move out of the station so its locomotives will not interfere with performances on the Riverfront stage. Passengers will not be able to return to the train during the July 4th festivities. To get some relief from the heat, misting stations and water fountains will be available.
Folding chairs will be allowed onboard. Any items that will not fit underneath the seat, such as large coolers, bikes and wagons, are not permitted on the train. Coolers of any size are not permitted at the event. Anyone needing special accommodations to board should call (615) 862-5925 prior to their trip.
